Crognolo Toscana IGT 2018 play

Region: Italy / Tuscany
Grapes: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot

Clay and sand soils as well as Tuscany’s special stony galestro limestone, combined with ideal sun exposure and a climate tempered by the Mediterranean, provide an ideal climate for the Sangiovese grape. Low yields of excellent-quality hand harvested fruit ensure a rich and concentrated result. Following hand sorting and destemming, grapes are fermented in a combination of temperature-controlled and lined open-top tanks. Lots are blended first when the wine is placed in barriques and again at the first racking. Crognolo is aged for 10 - 14 months in French Allier barriques and 5 - 6 months in bottle.
